PHILADELPHIA - A sliding Scott Hartnell kicked in a goal with 28.5 seconds left in overtime to lift the Philadelphia Flyers past the Los Angeles Kings 3-2 on Tuesday night.

Simon Gagne and Braydon Coburn also scored and Martin Biron had 29 saves for Atlantic Division-leading Philadelphia, which won for the ninth time in 11 games.

With the clock winding down, Mike Richards dumped the puck toward a streaking Hartnell, who scored his 17th goal off his skate.

HURRICANES 3, RANGERS 1: Rod Brind'Amour and Sergei Samsonov scored in the second period, and Trevor Letowski added an insurance goal in the third to give the Carolina a win.

Cam Ward made 34 saves for the Southeast Division-leading Hurricanes, who have won three of four.

PENGUINS 4, DEVILS 2: Erik Christensen had a goal and assist during Pittsburgh's three-goal second period, and the injury- and illness-plagued Penguins rallied from a pair of deficits to beat New Jersey.

The Penguins defeated the Devils for the fifth straight time in New Jersey and they did it without forwards Sidney Crosby (ankle), Colby Armstrong (flu) and Tyler Kennedy (mononucleosis).

SENATORS 5, ISLANDERS 2: Mike Fisher had a goal and assist as Ottawa beat the Islanders.

Andrej Meszaros, Chris Phillips, Dean McAmmond and Jason Spezza also scored for the Senators, who won for just the third time in eight games. Martin Gerber turned aside 23 shots for his 23rd win this season.

J.P. Dumont collected an assist, extending the league's longest current active point streak to 15 games.

COYOTES 4, JACKETS 2: Peter Mueller scored twice and Phoenix scored three third-period goals to win.

The Coyotes won for the first time when trailing through two periods. They came in at 0-18-0 when trailing headed into the third period.

Mueller's 14th and 15th goals came in the city where he was picked No. 8 in the opening round of last summer's NHL draft.

CANADIENS 4, CAPITALS 0: Cristobal Huet stopped 35 shots in his second shutout of the season and Mark Streit had a goal and an assist to lead Montreal.

Sergei Kostitsyn, Saku Koivu and Alex Kovalev also scored for Montreal, which has won three straight and seven of nine. Huet's shutout was the 15th of his career.

BLUES 3, MAPLE LEAFS 2: Keith Tkachuk scored on his team's first two shots and St. Louis ended a seven-game winless streak. David Backes had a goal and an assist for the Blues, who improved to 5-1-1 against the Eastern Conference.
